Audacious Compassion 010 – The ‘Why People Do Bad Things’ Thing

How do you empathize with people who seem cruel or rude? How do you recognize that “monsters” are people, too?

Our topic today is driven from some recent experiences of our own:

How do you empathize with people who seem to be cruel or rude? In other words, how do you empathize with jerks, and what’s the value in doing so? We want to focus on empathizing specifically rather than how to interact with them.

We also talk about C-SPAN and Prey, which was written by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda.

Please share any comments you have! If you’re interested in hearing about how to interact with cruel/rude people, let us know in the comments or on social media. If you have a submission of an everyday situation where it’s hard for you to be empathetic or compassionate, write us at:
